BDP to design new Telford & Wrekin Academy with Kier

Working with its partner Kier Construction, BDP has won the commission to design the new Abraham Darby Sport & Learning Academy at Ironbridge in Telford, as part of the Telford BSF project.

The design combines a 1050 place Academy, sponsored by the Haberdashers’ Livery Company, with a 420 place primary school and a community leisure centre, set on a sloping site at the gateway to the Ironbridge World Heritage Site.

The scheme exploits the levels to produce a highly compact design, thereby freeing up as much space as possible for external play, learning and sports provision.
